    The pollo asado super burrito is the best. They put some kind of sliced cheese in the burritos which make the flavor so amazing! The cantaloupe agua fresca is especially refreshing

    Head to La Altena, one of very few taquerias to roast its al pastor (marinated pork) on a vertical spit. Burritos and tacos with pork -- al pastor, carnitas, and the house-made chorizo -- are a must. Read more

    The bathroom looks like it's either from a horror movie or a really misogynistic porno.

    Tried the torta de asada and pollo. Both had no flavor and the bread was very soggy from the moment it was served. :/
